I had the Soundblaster Live 5.1 card in my computer, it didn't work in Vista unless I just happened to hold my tongue just right installing it. Since Creative is no longer supporting it and isn't putting out new Vista drivers I went out and got a new sound card. So I purchased the new Audigy SE card and my microphone is so low in volume I can barely use it. There's no boost mic button in the control in Vista, and I can't use the software on the CD that came with the card because its not compatible with Vista. What to do? I'm so frustrated, I don't know who to blame, Microsoft for not having the forsight of putting something as simple as a mic boost in Vista, or Creative for not getting out a fix knowing Vista has been coming for several years.
